After receiving services from NV Grow in brand messaging and social media strategy, Sugar & Spice is only getting started and is expected to grow exponentially. 


“As a small business owner doing it all, NV Grow has been a resource to assist in areas that may not necessarily be my strong point,” says Sheri Long, founder of Sugar & Spice. “I have learned new ways to approach various aspects of sales, promotion, and social media content. Having the assistance of NV Grow has provided a sense of security in knowing that there are supportive resources out there for small businesses assisting in many forms, and always as a silent cheerleader that is “on call” when questions may arise.”
